Backstage: Former Miss World Priyanka Chopra Films Exotic as presented by: Wall Street Journal

Since winning the Miss World pageant in 2000, Priyanka Chopra has become a Bollywood superstar, penned her own column in the Hindustan Times, hosted a reality TV series and, most recently, recorded an album. Now, the 30-year-old style icon has set her sights on America. Her single “Exotic,” produced with rapper Pitbull (who appears on the track), will debut July 1 along with a video, recently shot in South Beach, Fla. It will be her first widely-released single in the U.S., with a second coming later this summer. Ms. Chopra said she shot “Exotic” in South Beach to infuse it with some heat. “The song is called ‘Exotic’ so I wanted to keep it just that,” she said. “It’s very dance-heavy, and in India, that’s what we do in all of our movies, so it definitely has an Indian flavor to it.” This scene, which includes Ms. Chopra, second right, and Pitbull, far right, was shot in a private residence in Coconut Grove, Florida, a neighborhood just south of downtown Miami. Bollywood star Priyanka Chopra, center, gets her make-up done by Robert Greene, far left, on the set of her upcoming video. Ms. Chopra’s wardrobe, hair and make-up staff help get her ready for the shoot.
